Conversion of a cinema building from the 1930s (architect Karel Salač) to the Museum of Vintage Cars. The main principle of the new arrangement is based on the intertwining and contrast of the old and the new. The intention was to accept the historical context of the house, to preserve everything important and essential from a heritage point of view and to suggest possible modifications that will enable the historic cinema building to cover all the demands necessary for the car museum.Read more
An essential part of the conversion is the the cinema hall, which will allow to place 35 cars in the main exhibition area. The inserted floor has the form of a gallery; the roof skylight above the central part will provide natural daylight. The exterior of the main part of the cinema remains in its original historical look. On the lowered service south-western part of the building we propose a roof extension with an exhibition café with the view of Trávnice Street and an apartment facing to Krajířova Street.
